Anita Hill: FBI Investigation Is Needed

("Good Morning America"/ABC News)

Wednesday, 19 September 2018 08:41 AM

Anita Hill says the Senate Judiciary Committee could be holding a "sham" hearing next week without an FBI investigation of a woman's sexual-assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegation and has suggested California college professor Christine Blasey Ford's account could be a case of mistaken identity.

But Hill told ABC News' "Good Morning America" Wednesday that she supports Ford's demand for an FBI investigation before a hearing Senate Republicans have set for Monday. Hill questionedwhether the Senate hearing "is going to be anything more than just a sham proceeding."

Hill's 1991 allegation that Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her — and the committee's handling of his confirmation hearings — haunts Washington as a key event that alienated many women. Thomas denied Hill's account and was confirmed to the Supreme Court.
